Pita Pit Nutrition Info (Calories, Vegan, Gluten Free, Allergens)

Pita Pit Nutrition

In this Pita Pit Nutrition Info guide we’ll show you how many calories are in your favorite menu items and what this compares to at other fast food chains. We’ll also answer some of the most commonly asked questions about this chain, including:

  • Is Pita Pit Vegetarian?
  • Is Pita Pit Vegan?
  • Are there Gluten-Free Options?
  • Is Pita Pit Healthy?
  • Is Pita Pit Allergen Friendly?

This chain is growing very quickly in the United States and around the world. It has already taken a stranglehold on the Canadian market and it is set for global domination, following in the footsteps of countless quick-service chains before it. Pita Pit’s rise is helped by the fact that it offers quick and easy sandwiches which, as proved by chains like Subway and Jimmy John’s, we just can’t get enough of. But this particular chain also offers something a little different, a little fresher and a little healthier, as you can see from our Pita Pit Nutrition Info table below.

Pita Pit Calories

Pita Pit Calories

There is a lot of hidden calories in sandwiches, especially subs. Many new chains have tried to counter this with slimmed-down versions. That’s why you will find “lower calorie” menus at chains like Firehouse Subs and Potbelly. However, for the most part they are still calorific. Pita Pit is a little different though. They don’t use dough-heavy subs or panini. They use pita bread, which tends to be lighter, thinner and less calorific as a result.

Let’s take the Chicken Caesar Pita as an example. This comes in at just 353 calories. You get chicken and bacon, and you get the pita. It’s a snack that may feel fattening and filling, but one that ultimately won’t do much to your waist line. Now, let’s see how that measures up to some of the popular choices at similar chains (and not so similar chains). This is (roughly) how many Chicken Caesar Pitas you can get for the same amount of calories as other popular menu options:

  • Chicken and Bacon Ranch Melt from Subway (= 2 Chicken Caesar Pitas)
  • Italian Night Club from Jimmy John’s (= 3 Chicken Caesar Pitas)
  • 2/3lb Monster Thickburger from Hardee’s (= 4 Chicken Caesar Pitas)
  • 1 PANormous Meat Lover’s from Pizza Hut (= 5 Chicken Caesar Pitas)
  • 20 Chicken Wings from Hooters (= 6 Chicken Caesar Pitas)

Is Pita Pit Healthy?

As you can see from out Pita Pit Nutrition Info table, there are healthier options, but the entire menu isn’t healthy as such. If we use the Chicken Caesar as an example again, you’re getting 8 grams of fat for those calories, but just 2 of those are saturated. There is also only 2 grams of fibre and 1 gram of salt. For a snack, this is not bad, but it’s not great either.

If you opt for the veggie options and the lighter options, it’s much better. Also, the fact that the pitas are quite light and that they use so many fresh ingredients all helps to build up those nutritional values. With a dose of olive oil for healthy fats, some falafel for protein and fibre and plenty of greenery for vitamins, you can’t go wrong.

Of course, if you’re looking for the healthy options then you might want to avoid the meat-laden breakfasts pitas like the Awake with Bacon or the Steak & Eggs. These come with much more salt, saturated fat and calories. Still, it’s probably better than many burgers, tacos and pancakes you can get from other popular fast food chains.

Is Pita Pit Vegetarian?

There are a number of vegetarian options on the Pita Pit menu. They have meat-free options such as falafel so that you don’t have to stick to vegetables. There are also beans, hummus and more. Just look for the Veggie Menu. Everything on here is okay for vegetarians, with no hidden meat or fish products.

The same goes for many of the cheeses, just remember that most hard cheeses are not vegetarian as they use animal rennet. This is not entirely necessary in cheese production, but it does make life easier for cheese makers when they are producing hard cheeses. It’s less hit and miss and it’s also quicker and cheaper.

Is Pita Pit Vegan?

Pita Pit Nutrition Info

We have heard reports suggesting that there are vegan options on the Pita Pita menu. We have also heard from vegans who have been told this in store. But there are also suggestions that the pitas themselves contain eggs, which mean they are not vegan.

We heard from a blogger back in 2014 who tried to order vegan pitas from this menu. They were told that many vegans ordered “this” and “that”, and that most of these options were vegan. When they dug a little deeper, the server seemed to change their mind and say that the pitas themselves contained eggs. This was followed by a quote of, “But vegans still eat them”.

We’re not sure how to take this, and we haven’t been able to confirm or deny such reports. A few years have passed since this incident and we would hope that a lot has changed since then, but we haven’t had any confirmation of this. In the mean time we would recommend that all vegans ask their servers and even that they call for the manager to confirm the responses they receive. If they state that the options are vegan because they don’t contain cheese or yoghurt fillings, then ask them about the pitas. Ask if they can confirm that there are no dairy products used in the production of them.

Only then can you be 100% sure that the pita you are eating is 100% vegan friendly.

Pita Pit Gluten-Free Menu

When the bulk of your menu is based around a bread product, it isn’t easy to offer gluten-free versions. In the past, your only gluten-free options have been to order fillings without the bread, which is something that few people want to do.

However, this changed when Pita Pit launched a gluten-free pita. This should be available in locations around the world, but you will need to request it specifically. We can’t confirm whether it is available in all locations or not, but we can’t imagine that that would be the case. However, if you live near a popular location and a big location, then there is a good chance they will stock it.

Once you have the gluten-free pita then you can take your pick of fillings. Most of them are gluten-fee. There are exceptions, of course, but you should be okay for the most part. Just confirm with the server to make sure there are no hidden gluten ingredients and that there is no risk of contamination when preparing it.

Pita Pit and Allergies (Nuts, Soy, Dairy)

You can learn more about specific allergies on the Pita Pit Allergen Info page. Here you will be able to see exactly what each product contains, which will help you to avoid everything from nuts and soya, to wheat and dairy. This may actually be useful when looking for gluten-free options and vegan options, as it also contains a “wheat/gluten” section and also makes a note of the options that are vegan and the ones that are not.

As you can see from this guide, there is a big tick next to the pita which suggests that it is vegan. But there are still some doubts about this in the vegan community, so we would still advise caution.

Once you confirm that a certain menu option is okay to eat, be sure to run it through our Pita Pita Nutrition guide above. It’s always best to stay well informed about these things. If nothing else, it might make you feel less guilty about stuffing your face.
